P.A. 98-0634 made a number of important changes for 9-1-1 service in Illinois, including providing additional
surcharge revenue for 9-1-1 systems throughout the state, a mechanism for payment of outstanding invoices
for wireless carriers, and establishing new financial reporting requirements for 9-1-1 systems. The law creates
a Statewide 9-1-1 Administrator within the Department of the IL State Police. The new law addressed most of
the recommendations and observations from the 9-1-1 Services Advisory Board's April 2014 report to the General
Assembly; it extended the existence of the Board to July 1, 2015, and expanded the Board's membership from
11 to 18. The Board is required to work with the ICC to submit another report to the General Assembly by
April 1, 2015.
